Synopsis

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Office.

Description

The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office, Excel, or a related product that is affected by several vulnerabilities.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted Excel file, they could leverage these issues to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, Office 2007, 2010, Excel Viewer, and Office Compatibility Pack.
